Plugin / bbPress Moderation

Ian Stanley



To help reduce spam in bbPress forums, this plugin will change the status of new topics and
replies to ‘pending’. Any pending topics/replies will be shown as ‘Awaiting Moderation’ until
the administrator approves publishes them.


  • Blog administrator can be notified of new topics and replies requiring moderation.
  • Anonymous postings can always be marked for moderation.
  • Registered users can post without moderation after the first topic/reply is approved.
  • A bubble counter is shown on the Topics and Replies menu to indicate the number of posts awaiting moderation.
  • Pending topics/replies are styled to give the submitting user a ‘hint’ that the new topic/reply is pending


  • English
  • French
  • German – Thanks – daveshine (David Decker)
  • Turkish – Thanks Mustafa Çoban
  • Spanish – Thanks Yo
  • The .pot file is shipped for other translations – [send them in email iandstanley at gmail dot com]

Once activated the bbPressModeration plugin will, depending on the settings, prevent the publishing
of topics and replies until approved by the site administrator.

Registered users who have previously had a topic/reply approved do not need to go through the moderation
process for subsequent posts.

If a topic/reply is marked for moderation then it is shown in the bbPress Topic or Reply menu as Pending.
To approve the post, edit and click Publish.
